The Resident Consultant to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Media and Events, Mr Folu Olamiti has alerted members of the public to be wary of the antics of unknown persons who he said had been dropping his name to send unauthorized ICPC summons.
The unknown persons he alerted had been in the habit of authoring text messages to their targets, ordering them to report to the ICPC for investigations, with his name as undersigned.
Alarmed by the reports on activities of these people made to him, the ICPC media consultant in a statement said, “I wish to appeal to members of the Nigerian public to disregard such text messages, which never originated from me.
“Put succinctly, ICPC does not summon suspects through text messages since there are laid down rules for doing so.
“On the other hand, I do not work in the Investigative Department of the ICPC and hence not qualified to summon anyone for investigations.
“Members of the public should please take note, as I believe that the scammers involved will soon fall into the hands of the law”.
